Hi

Looking through ebay I found a wand collection that includes one of Warren's greatest creations - the wobble wand - as seen on Terry Herbert's first DVD.

Just do a search for "Large Lot MAGIC WAND Bonanza Kid Tricks"

I have nothing to do with this auction - but I know lots of people have been looking for these - and as I already have one and LOVE IT! - I thought I'd let you guys know about it.

I've already bid on it. A pox on anyone who outbids me!

P.S. Thanks for the tip Cliff!

I got it Cliff! It was, however, a hefty price!

Thanks again for the tip!

Congratulations, Magicgrandpa! A hefty price to pay, but still a good deal for you. The Nested Wands are from Austria and are about $40.00, if you can get them. When Warren was still with us and making the Wibbly Wobbly wand, I believe he charged $50.00 or so. So, there's $90.00 worth of wands right there.

Hope you have fun with them.

I bought a wobbly wand a couple years ago from Warren and I think it was at least $65.

Hey Frank:

Yes, Warren Stephens passed away almost exactly a year ago (April 6, 2006).

Sadly, Warren passed away on April 4, 2006.

edit: Ron - not that it matters, but I believe it was the 4th and not the 6th: http://www.kaulfuneralhome.com/pages/visit_info.php?id=2976

I believe George at Chalet owns the rights to, and remaining stock of, Warren Stephens' Magic.

Well done, Magicgrandpa!

You'll have a great time with it - it's a great piece of business!

Warren was an incredible man. I spent the day with him once on one of his trips here to Spain. The man was a genius!

Yes, Warren was very prolific. I corresponded with him many years ago and used his Comedy Card in Balloon for a time. Wish I still had it!

Thanks for all your good wishes. I'll have to retire my breakaway wand now!

You know, I thought I had just about every gimmicked wand produced. However, I don't believe I know what this "Wibbly-Wobbly" Wand is?

Can someone give me a detailed description of just what it does?

Many Thanks!

It's a wand that all of a sudden becomes limp and flops around.
You might even say that the wand becomes "wibbly-wobbly".

Then after the brats tell you that the wand has become limp, all of a sudden it's stiff again and you can whack it on the table, spin it, etc.

It's easily made from Dollar Store Parts, as are many other wands...just in case you don't want to go through eBay. I have an article on it in my section on Dollar Store Magic (on my site) called "Broomstick Witchcraft". It's called that because you begin with dollar store brooms, and then saw up the broom sticks to make a variety of magic wands.

It is very thoughtful of you, Spellbinder, to offer alternatives to very expensive props that can be made for a fraction of the cost. I can't afford all of the pricey things on the market, and I also appreciate being able to add my own touches and personalize the props. I am going to purchase some of your very reasonably priced articles.

The Wobble Wand came today, and it is an excellent alternative to the breakaway wand. Also in the collection was an extremely well made set of nesting wands (you were right, Ron).

I never purchased nesting wands, as I was unsure about the reaction it would get. The method seems so obvious. I would be interested to know what reactions others have experienced. Perhaps I'm missing something.

Also in the collection was a wizard's hat that, when removed from the child's head, leaves a plunger on his head. This is the sort of thing I would never do to a child. I try never to embarrass an assistant. Does anyone use this? Am I missing something again?

Thanks in advance for any input!

MagicGrandpa-

I believe the Plunger/Wizard Hat trick was called the "Sorcerer's Apprentice"
and was sold by dealers in the mid '80s.

It is funniest if YOU the Magician put the Wizard's Cap on, and then take the Hat off leaving the Plunger on YOUR own Head!

That way, the Joke is on YOU!

Kid's LOVE THAT!!!!

=Frank=

P.S.
I will purchase and take the nesting wands off of your hands if you will not be using them!
